What we cover in this week’s recap:
Kofax rebrands as Tungsten Automation and also introduces the latest release of TotalAgility Intelligent automation solutions provider Kofax has announced that it has changed its name to Tungsten Automation. The company, which has a history spanning almost four decades, explained that the rebrand reflects its evolution from a pioneer in document capture to a global provider of intelligent workflow automation solutions: “While our pledge to provide market-leading solutions and exceptional service remains unchanged, this rebrand affirms our evolution, our innovative capabilities, and the progressive direction we’re heading as a company.” The name Tungsten Automation stems from the acquisition of Tungsten Networks in June 2022. Kofax acquired the business transaction network to offer its customers more comprehensive invoice processing and accounts payable automation solutions thanks to Tungsten’s e-invoicing capabilities. According to Tungsten Automation, the new identity better augments its Intelligent Document Processing capabilities, adding value to its portfolio of solutions, particularly in the areas of traditional invoice processing, e-invoicing, and automating accounts payable processes, serverless print management and document productivity. Reynolds Bish, CEO of Tungsten Automation, further explained: “Choosing Tungsten Automation as our new name means embracing a promise of enduring reliability, innovations recognized by leading industry analysts, and a commitment to success in the dynamic world of intelligent automation. With a broad portfolio of solutions dedicated to solving inefficiencies across a wide parameter of use cases in the financial, healthcare, supply chain and government industries amongst others.” Ralph Gammon, Market Analyst at Infosource, commented: “Kofax always seems to have the best of intentions when it comes to advancing its business. And today’s announced name change to Tungsten Automation fits with that theme. After all, as Infosource has been saying for several years, positioning Capture & IDP as an enabler of end-to-end automation is one key to success in the market going forward. On the surface, this name change is reflective of that.” Along with the rebrand, Tungsten Automation has also unveiled the next generation of TotalAgility, its intelligent process automation platform. With the 8.0 release, the company introduces generative AI to TotalAgility, with a number of enhancements. These include generative AI co-pilot for development (helps developers turn ideas into workflows), generative AI co-pilot for insights (uses conversational AI to analyze unstructured data) and cloud-based document libraries (a repository of pre-trained models covering document types for various industries such as banking, insurance, government, healthcare and supply chain).
